Iceland Waterpark, Ras-Al Khaimah, UAE

Iceland waterpark RAK

The weekend just gone slid a couple of days for us, as Mark was busy working through Friday and Saturday. This wasn't all bad, as it's nice sometimes to have week days free to do things. 

Sunday for us was very lazy. We took a walk down to the beach near where we live. The beach was deserted apart from one other couple bobbing around in the sea. We took a lovely long stroll along the shore taking in the sea air. It was a bit windy on the beach, but we welcomed that very much as the temperatures are still very hot! We do love our little beach and feel so lucky to have one so close!

Monday we were slightly more adventurous! 

We went to the local water park near us called Iceland. 

When we lived in Dubai we loved going to Aquaventure, at the Atlantis on the Palm, so we were really excited to try Iceland out. We did have a fun day, but sadly the park was a bit tired and in need of some TLC.

Also, they had really really loud music playing by the lazy river! Now, if you're anything like us we can stay floating around lazy rivers for hours as they are so relaxing, but with the loud music it was really off putting, which is a real shame. 

On the plus side though, the rides they had were really good fun and we got a bit of a tan too, so not all bad!!

Mil Palmeras

Happy Thursday guys, hope you're all well. I'm just popping on here to show you a few pictures I snapped quickly today while we were at Mil Palmeras Beach. We popped to Mercadona this morning, well more lunchtime(ish) as we are sleeping in so much lately, but that's for another day. So, we picked up a few bits for the weekend and grabbed one of their sushi boxes for our lunch on the go. fyi , the best supermarket sushi I've had! After our trip to Mercadona we headed for Leroy Merlin in La Zenia as we needed to get some more bags of sand and some gravel too for our little diy garden project. I say little, but it's turning into quite the construction! Keep an eye on my  insta stories   over the weekend for updates. En-route to Leroy's we stopped off at Mil Palmeras to eat our sushi by the sea. Mil Palmeras has always been one of our favourite places here on the Costa Blanca South. Actually it was one of the first places we went to after the lockdown last year.  To

Moringa Oil - review

For a while now I've become increasingly interested in my skin and skincare products. I am now well into my thirties and becoming aware that my skin is changing . Something the 20 year old me never thought would happen. Maybe I thought I'd be blessed with clear skin for, forever. But dear Heather that is just not the case! Literally five years ago, since my 30th a random red blemish appeared on the end of my nose and has happily sat there since! Some days it would seem more prominent then others, but it was there to stay, so I thought. Recently, the week leading up to my 35th a friend of said blemish started to appear! A smaller lighter version. Flippin' hell I'm being invaded! Was this my future! The end of my nose filled with weird under the skin red blemishes?? I had already spied one random one on each side of my jawline!  Where ever next!? Enough. Enough is enough and action was needed. I'm not letting my future skin be plagued with these weird

Getting motivated to exercise

Getting motivated to exercise for me is probably one of the hardest things. I don't know why, as in my head I'd love to be one of these fitness girls you see all over Instagram all happy, bouncy and always raring to go. I always feel good after I've exercised so I really don't know why it takes me ages to get myself motivated. I'm 39 now and I know I need to lose weight. I'm not drastically overweight it's more of a personal thing. The usual story that my clothes are getting snugger, I'm out of breath a lot quicker after just doing the simplest tasks and I'm snoring a lot more at night, which my doctor did say could be because I've put on a few extra pounds. Over the last 9 years I've actually put on 20 lbs! That's crazy isn't it. The weight has literally been sneaking up on me and the fat has gradually been moving in a pound at a time. Crafty little thing really.  It has got to the stage where enough is enough and I need, probably fo
